Long time lurker, first time user here. I guess I manged to skim through the site and forums for years without feeling the need to make an account, until now of course. Now that it looks likes GB is going to start cranking out more premium features I think I might actually jump on board with the premium sub.

I should probably put some more stuff in here but nothing else is coming to mind right now. I've become a lot closer to PC now that I'm starting to notice the age of my 360 and PS3 so it will be fun to watch how the next-gen will turn out from the safe zone of my PC. So with that, yeah this website about video games (a video game website) seems to be pretty cool!

Welcome to the site! I've actually been a premium member since they first offered it like three years ago and I've been really satisfied with it since. This is probably one of the only sites I'll be able to commit to like that!

I've also recently transitioned from the consoles to the PC. Still a few games I've got on a PS3 backlog, though!

@Colourful_Hippie:

Welcome to the boards proper.

You bring up an interesting point, it seems like I've seen more and more posts about people wanting to get into PC gaming as this console generation spirals into Rip Van Winkle territory. Are you playing the same games as you would on the consoles, or have you gotten into the diverse indie scene on PC?

Welcome. If you have any need for relationship advice, the GiantBomb forum is the first place you should look for help.

@Ravenlight: Yeah I'm mostly just getting the PC ports of third party games like Darksiders 2 and Borderlands 2 plus some PC exclusives. I haven't gotten too much into the indie scene.

@Colourful_Hippie: Welcome! When I started I was impressed how friendly the folks here at GB were. In fact I ended up on this site because I wanted to participate in a gaming community and people here seemed the friendliest and most laid-back. Although, I probably could have done with fewer cartoons of anthropomorphised poo in my welcome thread.

I'd say watch the links in my mini profile but you seem to be well versed already.
